Gardening Research!

On Sunday the 19th many teachers, parents and students came in to school for the working bee! Lots of jobs got done around the school. In the garden we were busy getting the worm farms ready, preparing the veggie boxes by adding mushoroom mulch and manure to give the plants good conditions to grow in. Once we did this we put down pea straw to keep in the moisture. Click on the link below. So many videos about gardens and schools that have amazing spaces! Watch some videos and write down some tips that will help our garden. I’d love to hear about chickens especially!

Ethan’s European Trip!

Hi 3B

I haven’t been writing in the past few days because my mum has injured her leg and cannot walk on it so other than that we have been to a place called Club Med in Opio near Nice. It’s a hotel with an all you can eat restaurant from morning to night. We did archery with my aunts, uncles and cousins. We were supposed to have done tightrope but it rained the rest of the day. On the last night there was a prize for whoever won one of the sports like archery and ping pong. I won the archery prize and mum got a trophy for setting up the trivia quiz. The trophy said “you won! (who cares)”. So since my mum has hurt her leg we are staying at my grandma’s in Avignon for a few days.

Nude Food

Our schoolyard has too much rubbish in it. It’s not rude to eat nude food. Nude food is very important for our environment. But what is nude food? Nude food mean bringing lunch boxes that you can use over and over again and bringing containers that are washable to avoid using plastic. Here are some examples of good lunch boxes and containers. So when you are packing your lunch next time try to use Nude food! Let’s help reduce our impact on the environment and the rubbish in the school ground.

Do you use nude food? What are some tips or questions you might have? Post a comment!
